Open Door Metropolitan Community Church

Open Door Metropolitan Community Church In the spirit of having “open minds, open hearts, and open doors," we always seek ways to acknowledge and honor the presence of the Christ in every person.

Knowing we are beloved. Connecting to life. Sharing our peace. Sign up to receive our weekly e-newsletter, by emailing: [email protected]. The goal of the Open Door MCC community is to provide a welcoming and affirming spiritual home to all of God’s children across sexuality and gender identity through social justice activity, community building, and bible study so that we know our divine worth, deepen our relationship to self, other, and God, and share our peace with the world. We believe in the bible's message that God loves us all unconditionally, just as we are. We celebrate the knowledge that we can be Christian and gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender. We believe that the life and teachings of Jesus are relevant in today's world and help us live with hope and dignity during uncertain times and in an unjust world. It is through the witness and ministry of Jesus Christ that we find healing, comfort, and challenge. Gospel: We are each deeply beloved by God as we are. Namaste: We believe that each of us embodies and reflects the presence of God. Ephphatha: We commit to opening doors to one another across our differences. Pentecost: We affirm a variety of spiritual paths and expressions. Emmanuel: We understand that we must act on these truths to make change in the world. MCC was founded in 1968 in response to the need for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people and our allies to gather for worship as fully welcome and celebrated people of faith. We meet regularly on Sunday mornings for fellowship, discussion, praise, and communion. E-mail Rev. Miller Hoffman at [email protected] or call 607-232-0463. Peace.

Mission: Our Value Statement We believe that we are called to be the proud, humble, true, and free witness of God's love. We believe in the gift of God's grace for all. We believe that we are called to be openly welcoming to all. We believe that our community of faith is a family of choice. We believe in the divine connection of souls.

It is with deep feelings of love and grief that we must let our ODMCC family know that our dear Mama Ruth Schrader passed into Glory this Easter morning. She was at home, surrounded by her family who were holding her hands as she transitioned. She passed from natural causes after a week in hospice care. Mama Ruth, as we all knew her, loved us as we loved her. Please be in prayer for her family. At a later time a memorial service will be planned. Peace Mama Ruth, Peace.

Found this pic of Amy! ODMCC 20Mar2017
Happy Anniversary, ODMCC! Had I known, I'd have tried to attend the service. I first showed up in 1987-ish (about the time the building was dedicated by Troy Perry). ODMCC has always been a loving, serving, and celebratory community of Christ. Here's wishing you 36 more years, times 7!
Congratulations Open Door Metropolitan Community Church! Happy 36th Anniversary from New Light Metropolitan Community Church.
Hey y'all! Going to be stateside in September and going to drop in for a visit on Sunday, 2 September. Looking forward to seeing faces I know and meeting the new ones there too! I think I have only been able to go to Open Door a couple of times in the last 14 years since moving to England to be with my wife. I have always cherished the time that we were members there and look back with fondness on the memories with our church family!
